Lap pools are not the same as traditional swimming pools because they are primarily for exercising. That is why they are usually rectangular and are long and narrow.
Lap pools are perfect for Perth home-owners who wish to have a swimming pool to get regular exercise but have limited outdoor spaces.
Here are some more of the advantages of this kind of pool.
Get some exercise without leaving your home
Swimming is a great form of exercise. It combines aerobic and callisthenics in a single workout routine and provides better results because water gives more resistance than air. This way, a simple exercise can turn into a rigorous workout that tones and develops the muscle faster.
You also do not necessarily have to leave the house to get some exercise, so no more dragging yourself to the gym as you get to enjoy a relaxing lap in your backyard.
Swimming is one of the best forms of exercise known to man because aside from increasing muscle mass and toning the body, it also helps develop cardiovascular and muscular endurance. You also improve your breathing as your lung capacity increases.
Regular swimming sessions can also improve the overall blood circulation of the body. Furthermore, it is also a really good way to de-stress.
Utilise unused space
You do not have to have a huge backyard space to have a swimming pool installed. The long and narrow design of lap pools can fit in small and tight spaces. With the right planning, you can utilise any unused space in your backyard.
Less expensive than traditional swimming pools
Lap pools are generally less costly than conventional pools in terms of installation, maintenance and operational costs. They are a great choice for those wanting their own swimming pool but are reluctant to spend a small fortune on it.
And who said your lap pool should look sparse? You can add other elements to make it stand out more like installing a spa or accentuating it with plants and other ornaments.
